Hello and Welcome,
A while ago Ryan suggested I do a post about the tools I use in my shop. Great idea! I love my tools almost as much as I love my bikes. I think a good place to start would be with my main tool box.
(D) Metric Allen Wrench Set (E) SAE Allen Wrench Set (F) Small SAE and Metric Wrenches (G) Various Small Wrenches (H) Extra Metric Wrenches Popular Sizes. I would highly recommend the Gear wrenches. They are a real time saver. And quite often they will fit where a ratchet/socket will not.
Above: (A) Mini Frame Pump (B) Teflon Tape (C) Pipe Cutter (small) (D)Under Seat Bag tube repair Kit (E) Tire levers / removal tools (F) Free Wheel removal tools (G)1,2&3 Crank/Arm removal tools (H) 3/8 - 1/4 Mini Ratchet (I) 3/8 extension
(J) 14mm socket (remove crank retainer-nut or bolt) (K) Schrader Valve Tool (L) Chain Tool (M) Spoke wrenches (N) Cone Wrenches (O) New Bottom Bracket Cartridge removal tool (Shimano) (P) Allen Key sockets (Q) Chain Whip (R) Air Pressure Gage check /adjust (S) Spanner (T) Lock Ring Wrench (U) Metric Rule (V) Caliper Type Measuring Tool (metric) (W) Mini prying tool (for rim strip removal)
(E) Stupid "As seen on TV" Gadget wrench (I also have one of those stupid battery powered crescent wrenches..lol) Make me an offer!
It paid for itself that day.
P.S. I have since thought of other tools I should have included. But that could go on forever. So this post will have to do for now.
